Lions end 12-game skid PDF Print E-mail

The outcome of Friday night’s football game between the Salem Lions and the Silver Creek Dragons meant a lot to both teams. This is Silver Creek’s first season as a varsity football team and Salem’s first season with Head Coach Mo Moriarity. Both were hungry for a win.
Fortunately for the Lions, they came out on top beating the Dragons with a score of 45-27.
The game was originally set to be played at Silver Creek, but was moved to Salem when the Dragons had problems with their football field.
After playing away last week, Salem was happy to have the home field advantage.
“You always want to play at home!” said Moriarity, adding that Salem lucked out that Silver Creek’s field wasn’t ready. “It was definitely a plus for us.”
Friday’s win broke a 12-game losing streak, which the coach pointed out was a big morale booster for the team.
“They were really excited,” said Moriarity. “They went through a tough year last year not winning any games. They are a really young team and I think the win, from a mental aspect, did a lot.”
The Lions put their first points on the board shortly after the start of the game, missing the extra point. Silver Creek answered by running back the Lion kick off and scoring just 14 seconds later, leaving the score at 6 to 6.
The two teams held each other on the next couple of possessions until Silver Creek grabbed another 8 points with a two point conversion with 2:40 left in the first quarter.
SHS freshman Logan Harding made a few good runs before a penalty was called against the Dragons. With 33 seconds left, the Lions scored and made the extra point ending the first quarter with Silver Creek up, 14 to 13.
Silver Creek was the first to put more points on the board in the second quarter after a near interception by the Lions. Late in the second quarter the Lions were able to answer leaving the score at 21 to 19 at the end of the half, with the Dragons in the lead.
Salem scored two more times in the third quarter, missing the extra points both times, bringing the score 31 to 21. With five minutes left in the quarter, the Lions intercepted the ball and was able to score one more time, getting a two-point conversion with Senior Devan Jerrell, putting the score at 39 – 21 heading into the final 12 minutes of play.
Both teams scored one more time, both missing the extra points for a final score of 45-27.
“We made a lot of improvements,” said Moriarity when comparing the win to the previous week’s loss at Paoli.
“We had a good week of practice. They came back and worked hard and improved in every area.”
He said the team was down by 2 at the half and came back to win by three touch downs, which he was very proud of, adding that they have been training hard and it showed in the second half.
Freshman Logan Harding, Senior Devan Jerrell, Sophomore Andrew Maudlin, Senior Zach Payne and Junior Klayton Dougherty were all players who stood out in the coach’s mind as really stepping up and making some key plays throughout the night.
“I told the guys we had a lot of good plays with a lot of good players and that’s how you win football games.”
The Lions will host North Harrison Friday night at 7 p.m.
